Seth Meyers found it “so cathartic” to see regular voters “put Trump in his place” during this week’s ABC City Hall, especially because at this point it has become very rare.
“That’s what happens when Trump steps outside his right – wing media bubble,” The said Late night said the host. “Most of the time he surrounds himself with sycophants and yes men. So he is rarely treated like the idiot blowhard he is. “For example, instead of interrupting him when he ‘calls Fox & Friends and wanders for an hour,'” Meyers said, “the hosts just sit there staring blankly into the camera, as if posing for passport photos.”
It was during Trump’s recent appearance on the show that he tried to push the baseless conspiracy theory that his rival Joe Biden is taking some sort of performance-enhancing drugs.
“Trump and his supporters in right-wing media have also been desperate to turn the presidential campaign into a referendum on the candidates’ mental fitness,” Meyers later explained before showing viewers that clip. “Sorry, do you think Biden is taking drugs?” he asked. “You sniff as if you were just walking out of the bathroom in Studio 54.”
“So Trump wants you to believe that Joe Biden is the one in cognitive decline, and yet when Trump defended his lie that the coronavirus would just magically disappear, he tried to claim that we would soon reach herd immunity,” he continued. Meyers, “which is a lie and also incredibly dangerous without a vaccine. And on top of that, he could not remember the expression. ”
After playing the clip of the president in which he spoke about the importance of “herd mentality,” the host joked, “If that is the case, then I assume Trump’s supporters are already healed.”
“He meant to say herd immunity, but could not remember it,” Meyers said. “You know, if Joe Biden really takes a magic substance that gives him clarity, then you might as well try a little bit of it. I mean, how much worse could it make you? Every time you do one of these crazy interviews, it sounds like you just finished hoisting asbestos. ”
